Duration:1 second max
Incredibly fast object moving across the horizon in a fraction of a second.

We are a small video production company in the South of the Spanish owned Island of Tenerife, just off the West Coast of Africa.

During filming of a property for a client we obviously wanted to capture some of the views of the Atlantic ocean from the properties balcony. The cameraman at the time didnt notice anything unusual but when it came to editing I noticed a blip that spoiled a rather nice zoom out from the horizon to the shore. This blip appeared in just one frame, but when i slowed it down I realised that whatever it was, was moving so fast you could barely see it. In slow motion you can see it progress (or possibly skip) across the horizon in three stages. Long and dark with no lights, on closer inspection it does appear to have a lighter coloured "hat" for want of a better description.

I have posted the evidence of the film both in real time and slow motion on youtube ... so people can see for themselves.

We do still have the original tape that this was captured to.
